May a small private sailboat navigate the lower Hooghly River, aka the Ganges, from it's mouth in the Bay of Bengal upriver to Kolkata? And if so, what is available for private mooring
in or around the city?
I have scoured the internet
to the best of my ability, and have only found information regarding the passage
cargo vessels and their docking
facilities. There's nothing mentioned anywhere about private boats. I cannot even find a Google
image of a modern private western style sailboat located anywhere near Kolkata, which leads me to further wonder if the passage
I have found the Hooghly River upstream of Kolkata is inundated with local vessels and commercial
cruises, but even there I find no evidence of any modern western sailboats or yachts.
I am writing a novel that poses these questions, and I would like to provide information that is as accurate as possible. Thank you for your time and help.
